Zootopia/Zootropolis and the drama plot in comedy

Zootopia (US title) or Zootropolis (EU title) is a comedy released by Disney during the first half of 2016. The movie was widely succesful and received praise by both critics and audience. This praise is, in my opinion, very well deserved. Zootopia not only entertains us, but it also gives a great lesson about comedy […]

Kung Fury movie review

Kung Fury movie review

Today I’d like to talk about a recent Youtube release, the movie Kung Fury, an excelent parody of eighties’ action films. If you heard about it, you’ll know it was financed through a Kickstarter (to which I made a donation) bumped by the huge success of their hilarious trailer.

5 movies you need to watch if you play in a Rock band

5 movies you need to watch if you play in a Rock band

Today I wanted to write about five movies that the general public might consider funny or good, but for those readers who play (or have played) in a rock band, are, in my opinion, essential.
